's transgender students use whatever bathroom they want in school. what about the privacy of their peers? and now, mike huckabee. welcome to "huckabee" from fox studios in new york city. it looks as though the voters of new york have come to their senses on the possible election of anthony weiner to be mayor. he now languishes far back in the polls. he's actually set a record for the highest unfavorable rating of any candidate ever polled in new york. a stunning 80% unfavorable. [ applause ] only 11% see him favorably and they must be either porn og rafs, late night comedians, or people that work for cell phone providers and need his business. add to that embarrassing spectacle the case of eliot spitzer who is vying for the job of new york city comptroller, the job that oversees finance and spending. the married governor spitzer certainly proved to be a big spender on call girls, so it is hard to see why new yorkers would trust him with their money. despite the entertainment value of having these and other politicians find it impossible to leave the spotlight, no matter how humiliating it must be

and not just right now. and that really has a lot of meaning to us. and we have great sympathy for the fact that this is an enormously complicated process that they're, that they are going through. what we have asked of the fcc commissioners is more traction parent si -- transparency, more engagement. it might be conventional wisdom that if broadcasters want to stop this -- actually, i think it's in our interests to accelerate this to the degree possible while still getting it right. because this has enormous consequence to the nation that there is a dedicated and healthy broadcast band dedicated to broadcasting if we're serious about preserving video on a large scale that is free and that is local. these things are hugely important to people. in the information age, people still care about gathering around their big screens and watching sporting events or getting emergency information or staying up with the news. it comes there broadcasting in a very significant way. so we, we gave up a lott of spectrum -- a lot of spectrum when we went from analog to digital. we're being asked for more. b

: thank you. >>> in egypt, a potentially game-changing situation in the deadly crisis there. attorney us now say the ousted dictator, hosni mubarak, a prime target of the first arab spring protest, could walk out of jail within days, a free man. they say they're close to settling one of mubarak's corruption cases, the only case keeping him in jail. a court convicted mubarak and sentenced him to life in prison last year for failing to stop the government's deadly crackdown on protesters. and an appeals court is set to overturn that verdict and now he is awaiting trial. until that happens he could get out of prison, essentially on bond, and that could throw yet another wrench in the egypt political turmoil which has grown deadlier by the day. nearly a thousand people reported dead in less than a week as supporters of the deposed president, mohammed morsi, battled in the streets. security forces cleared not one but two protest camps in cairo on wednesday last week and as that unfolded, lawmakers here in the united states are talking about the future of america's partnership with its key mid

, regulations running rampant. president obama using regulations as the strong arm for is a ministration. the amount of regulatory rules finalized in his first term lag behind that of president george w. bush's first term with nearly 12% fewer rules. president obama's rahman comes with a heavy price tag. 186 of his roles finalize his first term were deemed economically significant. that means that each rules annual economic impact is more than $100 million. the cost which blows the '81 economically significant roles in of the water. with more on this, editorial board member of the wall street journal. thank you for being with this. the count the shows the presence of oz first term had fewer regulations. it's askew. there are time coming up that just aren't quite final. >> that's exactly right. those to make a loss to the amount of regulatory burden, you're talking about thousands or perhaps even tens of thousands of new pages of regulations. those are the big when it comes to new regulations, let's not forget, the climate change agenda, the apa. this is the fact that will be defined not
as they can in violation of the constitution, those of us who believe in individual liberty and private property rights and the rule of law and the constitution need to look at the constitution for answers. and it provides one under article v. two methods to amend the constitution. >> as you say, we'll put on the screen to explain. >> two methods. one of which has been used successfully. we have 27 amendments to the constitution. one which is not. but that second method is not radical. it's not weird. it's there because the framers put it there and they put tlit for a reason. the second method for amending the constitution. the first is two thirds of the congress proposing. in this instance, it's two thirds of the states. calling a convention. not a constitutional convention. article v talks about a convention for the purpose of amending the constitution. you still three three fourths of the state to ratify. we have a runaway congress and supreme court and bureaucracy and president. this is a system put in place specifically by the framers and george mason insisted on it and got the sup
that are used widely today and administered privately, there are some difference, one of those which i think you're getting to is that the medical reimbursement accounts administered by the city have no prescribers other than them being available broadly for medical services. >> you said earlier, i want to get the number right, that about 35% of employers that use these hra's have not allowed in this past year that the money be used for health insurance? >> that is correct. >> if that money is now going to be used in healthy san francisco let's say, will healthy san francisco place restrictions on the use of that money? i would imagine that we are not going to prohibit people from using that to buy health insurance? >> that sounds unlikely. i would be reluctant to speculate but i can say there's no such restrictions on the administration of those accounts currently or over the five or six years they've been maintaining those accounts forward. er >> i think that's a great thing, you have more people using that money for health insurance. in terms of the medical reimbursement accounts, is there an

is the president that the current military government of egypt may use access to the suez canal as a bargaining tool? >> i have not seen that prospect raised. suffice to say we value the working relationship we have with the egyptians, a relationship that goes back decades, the we have been concerned by some of the steps taken by the interim government to not follow through their commitment to transition back to a democratically elected civilian government. we have made those concerns pretty clear not just of them in private conversations, but to all of you in public announcements of the president and other senior administration officials. >> how much support does the president intend to receive from nato allies and regional allies as he moves to perhaps other initiatives? >> related to egypt? what i would say is that obviously these other countries will be making a determination on their own about their own national security interests. because you are talking about allies, it is reasonable to assume those interests will largely overlap. we have been and will be consulting with allies as they c

and it is only 9 percent contained. >>> maria molina is here to tell us if the weather going to cooperate. see if firefighters will see any relief today. >> unfortunately i don't have any good news. we are talking about conditions that aren't favorable for firefighters to continue to combat these fires across parts of idaho. we have others in california and across colorado. you are looking at low humidity levels and gusty winds gusting over 35 miles per hour. that could help some of these fires continue to spread very rapidly. the topography is also really rough. you are talking the rocky mountains. it is not easy without taking into account the weather conditions and isolated thunderstorms that could produce additional lightening strikes. the wildfire in idaho started by lightening. the possibility of more lightening strikes is in the forecast as we head into today, tomorrow and even in the next several days at the end of the workweek. across the southeast over the next several days we are getting drenched with heavy rain and temperatures it has been cool because of a boundary out here 3-5 in
. this is going on at the same time with the u.s. credibility at stake. your colleagues are calling for the u.s. aid to egypt be pulled. it passes through the suez canal. also so many things hang in the balance for the region because for the u.s. that has been our regional ally for an arab state. does the u.s. have any real leverage here with the money, the 1.6 billion in aid? or if we take it away does it mean that someone else is going to come in, a foreign entity to fill that financial void. >> that is an important point, thomas. we have already given most of that aid, the $1.3 billion, only about 500 million that has yet to be given during this fiscal year. we have delayed the delivery of f-16 planes and withheld the apache helicopter. they are very interested in getting the military equipment from us and ironically, that money goes to u.s. defense contractors. i think this issue is much bigger than withholding aid. this is a relationship that has been developed over decades with mu bar ark who was a dictator as well. you're absolutely correct when you say that this is a pivotal relationshi

evening, everybody. thank you for being with us. bloody deadly violence in the streets of cairo today and more violence is expected as the military shuts down demonstrations supporting deposed president mohamed morsi. president obama tonight appears to be assuming role of the great appeaser in the middle east. in northern africa and south asia, willing, it seems, to negotiate american interests and the interests of our allies with the taliban to in some interests directly affiliated with groups in al qaeda and muslim brotherhood for a significant if not dominant role in the egyptian government. we'll be exploring throughout the region the degegree to whic the obama foreign policy is responsible and whether this administration cannot successfully play a struktive role in support of egypt's secular military and in the shaping of a new democratic government with or without the muslim brotherhood and any forthcoming governing coalition. our foreign policy expert will also take on the issue of why mr. obama wants the muslim brotherhood's participation despite the objections of the secular
military closely aligned with the u.s. government, but they're not listening, they're not sort of honoring that alliance. >> right. >> what leverage does it give the u.s. to take the step you're advocating this morning? >> well, i think at this point, they're obviously getting the impression that no matter what they do, our aid will continue, so we do need to exercise our influence by saying we're going to follow the law, particularly in light of your recent violent crackdowns, suspend aid until you restore democracy, until you move to an inclusive process for elections, and obviously, a new constitution that allows all people to have a say in it, to respect people's rights. i think that's what we have to do at this point. we've tried to go down a road to get them to do the right thing. they're not doing that. and also, i would say this, david. the best way to marginalize the muslim brotherhood is in the ballot box, not through arrests and killing people. in fact, you're just going to encourage them to martyrdom, rather than just defeating them at the ballot box. they blew it when they wer

the judge blocked key evidence and presented prosecutors saying they could not use key witnesses they wanted to and explain the motive behind the attack. major nidal hasan is a cowed of killing 13 and wounding 30 others in fort. >> good to see you. interesting turn of events today. one of the final steps of the prosecution and from the prosecution's side was to dwelve in major hasan radicalization and the power point presentation he put together two years on the attacks that focused on suicide bombings and muslims fighting. the judge said it was to remote in time and may be interpreted in different ways. she ruled that the prosecuting attorneys could not introduce evidence of e-mail exchanges between hassan and a l- a la wki to avoid confusion between motive and defense of others. she rowelled that hassan could not use defense of other in the strategy. but the judge osborne allowed web searches to remain in. evidence that hasan looked for things on the internet as jihad. it is considered a blow to the family victims. but military analyst say that the prosecution still has plenty to secure a
